A$AP Mob is gearing up to release a new album which is yet to be titled on March 4. The Nas-inspired track, “Trillmatic,” is the latest single to be featured off the upcoming project. Take a listen as the song boasts a raw and gritty ’90s vibe as A$AP Nast and Method Man effortlessly ride the smooth instrumental and perform to the camera out on the streets of New York. This one’s definitely worth a view.
Follow along as Method Man takes cameras to his old stomping grounds over at Staten Island’s Park Hill projects. The Wu-Tang Clan member shares with viewers his old technique of serving drug fiends out on the block and breaks down how his name as a talented rapper began circulating around the neighborhood. Meth also gives insight into what he thought about the group’s debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers, after his first ever listen.
DJ-producer J-Love links up with Method Man for a new collaborative joint titled “Late Night.” The song finds both artists going to work over a mellow sample based instrumental courtesy of J-Love. The duo keeps it straight street as they kick rhymes about questionable artists in the game who claim to put in work and talk tough.
Houston’s Killa Kyleon doesn’t let up and continues to drop daily heat with his latest offering “Bring The Pain Freestyle.” This one finds the rising talent showcasing his lyrical skills as he effortlessly drops bars about his hustles in the streets, taste in women and competitive attitude over Method Man’s classic “Bring The Pain” instrumental. With no hook in sight, listen as Kyleon goes to work and demonstrates just why he feels he’s Texas’ best kept secret. The outro also boasts a A$AP Rocky sample from his recent “Back & Forth” interview with rapper Riff Raff where the Harlem native described his love for the culture in Texas.

Method Man recently during a 4/20 show in Denver took the opportunity to address the crowd and clarify that “he started that shit” when it came to crowd walking. Now I don’t completely agree with that statement because there have been plenty of acts in different genres that have come years before Method Man. However, when it comes to Hip Hop I can’t remember the last time I saw someone do crazy antics like that in the crowd but Method Man and Redman has done his share of questionable things. Still, I do agree that Method Man was doing crowd walking far before Macklemore probably even picked up a microphone. Check out this clip where Method Man explained while on stage and proceeded to do his business.
We thought you guys might get a kick out of this. Method Man lets Macklemore know what’s up when it comes to crowd walking. This took place at the 420 Method Man / Redman concert sponsored by WeedMaps, The Clinic, and Homegrown Outfitters at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, Colorado 4/20/13.
